Trump Withdraws US From UN Migrant And Refugee Compact

US pulls out of UN’s migrant and refugee pact

But U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said the global approach was "inconsistent" with the Trump administration's policies.

The United States will not join the worldwide Treaty on migration, which must be adopted in 2018, said in an American mission to the UN.

The same day, US Senator Chris Murphy proposed a new legislation dubbed No Ban on Refugees Act that would restrict the federal government from barring refugees seeking to come to the United States from 11 Muslim-majority countries.

Earlier, the UN Secretary-General was informed of this decision of the United States.

The withdrawal is consistent with the president's America First policies.

The United States signed the non-binding New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants in 2016 under President Barack Obama.

"We will decide how best to control our borders and who will be allowed to enter our country".

Has Clemson passed Alabama as the premier dynasty in college football?
If Tuesday was bad for Ohio State, it was worse for TCU, which has never really resonated with the committee this year. Even NC State sneaking back into the rankings at No. 24 helps Clemson, which won in Raleigh on November 4.

The injunction blocks the Trump administration from implementing the ban against nationals of six Muslim-majority countries that have a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States. These commitments are known as the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants.

A coalition of 16 state Attorneys General have filed a new friends-of-the-court brief opposing US President Donald Trump's third iteration of travel ban they had called "unconstitutional".

"The New York Declaration contains numerous provisions that are inconsistent with US immigration and refugee policies and the Trump administration's immigration principles", a statement from the USA mission said. Since he took office in January, he has also moved to ban USA entry by people from select Muslim countries.

Under the Trump administration, the United States has pulled out of several global commitments including the UN culture and education body, UNESCO, and the Paris climate change agreement.

"How to further insult your Mexican neighbor, turn your back on humanity's most desperate, and make America irrelevant on a hugely destabilizing global crisis in one easy step", she posted on Twitter.

In 2016, the administration of Barack Obama, who was then President of the United States, made a decision to join the NY Declaration on migration.

"The president risks isolating the US for the sake of his own fans - and his own ego", the op-ed said.
